The origins of Agalloch day back again to 1995 as well as the disintegration from the band Aeolachrymae. As that group passed away, three phoenixes surfaced from your ashes, Sussurrus Inanis, Nothing at all, and Agalloch. Mixing dark metallic with atmospheric textures, gothic doom, and neo-folk and post-rock details, the Portland, OR-based group quickly created a rabid cult pursuing. Their first demonstration, From Which of the Oak, was documented in 1996; in 1998, they documented another demonstration and shopped it around to brands. Their efforts paid because the group arrived a cope with The End Information. The following calendar year the people — vocalist/guitarist John Haughm, bassist Jason William Walton, guitarist John Anderson, and keyboardist Shane Breyer — released their experimental and brooding debut, Pale Folklore. The EP Of Rock, Breeze and Pillor made an appearance in 2001 before Agalloch’s critically acclaimed sophomore work, The Mantle, strike shops in 2002. Four years transferred before the music group released their following full-length, Ashes Against the Grain, once again to high vital and fan compliment.
